Upcoming Universal Catalog Titles

Posted March 8, 2013 07:11 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thThe UK branch of Universal Studios has revealed that it is planning to add five titles to its Blu-ray catalog in May: Burt Kennedy's The War Wagon (1967), Don Siegel's Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970), John Sturges' Joe Kidd (1972), Stuart Millar's Rooster Cogburn (1975), and Phil Alden Robinson's Sneakers (1992). Street date is May 6th.

The War Wagon

John Wayne plays rancher Taw Jackson, who's dead set on capturing an ironclad stagecoach belonging to a cattle baron who stole his fortune and tarnished his good name years before. To pull off the heist, Jackson puts together a crew that includes an old character, a half-civilized Indian, a young drunk and a cocky gunfighter. Starring John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Howard Keel, and Robert Walker Jr.

Two Mules for Sister Sara

Based on a story by Budd Boetticher. Clint Eastwood is a hard-hitting high plains drifter who rides into town and single-handedly rescues a local nun from a gang of attackers. After meeting a band of Mexican revolutionaries bent on resisting the French occupation of Mexico, the cowboy and Sister Sara decide to join forces with the freedom fighters and set off on a deadly mission to capture the enemy's garrison. But along the way, a steamy romance develops between them when the soft-spoken hero discovers the nun is not what she seems. Ending with a violent climax at the well-protected fort, this action-packed western classic cemented Eastwood' status as a true cinematic superstar. Starring Clint Eastwood, Shirley MacLaine, and Manuel Fábregas.

Joe Kidd

Joe Kidd, which concerns a land war in New Mexico at the turn of the century, marks Clint Eastwood at the top of his form as a western hero. Filmed in 1971, the classic backdrop of the High Sierras, the top-notch acting skills of Robert Duvall and the rugged Eastwood as a "hired gun" who takes action based on his own particular sense of justice. And like a very classic western, it has gunfights, conflicts, and a slam-bang finale which has a locomotive being driven through a saloon where the bad guys are hiding. Starring Clint Eastwood, Robert Duvall, and John Saxon.

Rooster Cogburn

Two of the most popular stars in screen history are brought together for the first time in the follow-up to True Grit. The film returns John Wayne to the role of the rapscallion, eye-patched whiskey-guzzling Deputy Marshall that won him an Academy Award. Katharine Hepburn is prim Eula Goodnight, a Bible-thumping missionary who teams up with the gun-fighter to avenge the death of her father. While in pursuit of the outlaws, a warm rapport develops between the rough-and-tumble lawman and the flinty reverend's daughter. Starring John Wayne, Katharine Hepburn, and Anthony Zerbe.

Sneakers

Robert Redford leads an all-star cast in one of the most satisfying suspense films! Computer expert Martin Bishop heads a team of renegade hackers-including a former CIA employee, a gadgets wizard, a young genius and a blind soundman - who are routinely hired to test security systems. But Bishop's past comes back to haunt him when government agents blackmail the "sneakers" into carrying out a covert operation: tracking down an elusive black box. Along with his former girlfriend, Bishop's team retrieves the box and makes a stunning discovery-the device can break into any computer system in the world. With factions from all sides willing to kill for the powerful box, Bishop and his team embark on their most dangerous assignment ever in this exhilarating high-tech caper from Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams). Starring Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Sidney Poitier, David Strathairn, and River Phoenix.

Holy ****! Two Duke and two Eastwood westerns, not to mention all the John Wayne that Olive is releasing in the next months. Christmas is coming early this year. I've been waiting for Joe Kidd, the others will be blind buys.

edit: Ahhh, freakin' UK branch... Well these better be a precursor to US releases.

Always great to see Univeral dipping into their catalog! I look forward to all of the announced titles and echo the poster aboves list, and could easily add at least one or two dozen more. Hopefully, they'll be initially released in reasonably affordable BD editions, rather than overpriced books that never go on sale, like Pillow Talk.

Aargh. Just saw that all of these are UK only. Hope Universal gets around to putting them out in the US sometime before BD goes the way of the dodo too.

Hey, Universal, when you have Steven Spielberg films not on Blu-ray, you need to put them on Blu-ray. Fact. So stop dicking around. And while you’re at it:

Prince of Darkness
Streets of Fire

Oh, and Congo, just for the hell of it.

How about On Golden Pond already? Double Oscar winner and a timeless classic. The AFI lists Katharine Hepburn as the number one movie actress of all time (deservedly so) and so few of her movies are available on Blu-ray.
